At Mayfair Animal Hospital we encourage a complete picture of your young pet’s health. By nature, animals are designed to disguise their pain and potential illnesses. Keeping this in mind we feel it is essential to regularly examine and gather baseline blood values to allow us to monitor your pet’s overall health.
An Early Detection Panel is a physical exam of the inside of the body. It is performed for pet’s ages 1-7 years old as part of their annual exam. EDP is a package of tests composed of a Blood Chemistry Panel, a Complete Blood Count and a Urinalysis (see below). An Early Detection Panel can assist in diagnosing underlying health conditions before your pet is displaying symptoms such as diabetes, kidney or liver disease. If these diseases are caught early we can begin to manage environmental and dietary changes and/or begin medications earlier providing your pet with the best quality of life possible.
We look forward to working with you to keep your young pet active and healthy.
